  • Defending World Series champions South Africa beat France 21-12 to take the trophy

South Africa had advanced to the final by beating Fiji 31-12 in their last four match.

Spain have beaten New Zealand for the first time in men's rugby with a 26-24 victory in the World Rugby Sevens Series in Vancouver.

Two minutes after the restart, Kok went on a devastating run down the middle to grab South Africa's third try, and Selvyn Davids was on hand to add the extras to again maintain his flawless kicking display.

The Aussies put the issue beyond doubt with Henry Hutchison and John Porch scoring tries early in the second half.

But from the resulting restart after Lakafia's try, the Blitzboks made their move as their game-breaker Selvyn Davids beat the defence, ran 70m and then released Visser for a converted try to take the lead.

"I think it was a much improved effort from our team and the boys played some fantastic rugby", South Africa captain Philip Snyman said. I'm really happy with the win and hopefully we can build on this one now.

As they did in the semi-final against Fiji, the Blitzboks conceded a late try to their opponents when Stephen Perez shrugged off Justin Geduld's attempted tackle.

Fiji finished third after beating United States of America 24-14. Fiji are third with 101 but South Africa have leapfrogged England into fourth on 89 points.

South Africa also beat Wales 19-10 and Chile 43-0. Crucially they are nine points ahead of fifth-placed England in the race for a top-four place‚ which brings automatic qualification for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

With pool play over, in the other quarter-finals South Africa will play Argentina after winning Pool A, Samoa will play France who finished second behind New Zealand in Pool C and England will play the current series leaders the US.

The World Series resumes in Hong Kong on April 5 for what is traditionally seen as the season's premier tournament.
